Another 2018 build; the Italeri B-26K Counter Invader (1:72) plus the Whirly Birds Congo set to change it to the CIA run example. The latter is a great addition including decals and resin parts and some great notes and photos which I hadn't found anywhere else.

CIA operated in cahoots with the Congolese government in repressing various rebellions. Intresting aside is these were mostly Cuban exile CIA operatives and they flew against Che Guevara led Cuban rebels in the Congo.
